Analysing exemplary science teaching
There are a lot of books in which science education researchers tell science teachers how to teach. This book, refreshingly, is written the other way round.
There a number of accounts by outstanding science and technology teachers of how they use new approaches to teaching to motivate their students and maximise their learning. These accounts are then followed by some excellent analyses from leading academics.
'Analysing exemplary science teaching' brings together twelve academics, ten innovative teachers and three exceptional students in a conversation about teaching and learning.
Teachers and students describe some of their most noteworthy classroom practice, whilst scholars of international standing use educational theory to discuss, define and analyse the documented classroom practice.
Classroom experiences are directly linked with theory by a series of annotated comments. This distinctive web-like structure enables the reader to actively move between practice and theory, reading about classroom innovation and then theorizing about the basis and potential of this teaching approach.
Providing an international perspective, the special lessons described and analysed are drawn from middle and secondary schools in the UK, Canada and Australia.
This book is an invaluable resource for pre-service and in-service teacher education, as well as for graduate studies. It is of interest to a broad spectrum of individuals, including training teachers, teachers, researchers, administrators and curriculum coordinators in science and technology education.
